Effective surrender is a key outcome of faith; a preponderance of acceptance. I was in the hands of others and just had to submit to the system before me.
This is a pretty easy example, notwithstanding the desire to become impatient and annoyed—of which anyone’s capable given a lack of self-control.
“Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.”
Whilst my traffic example is hardly worth a response of well-founded pity or sympathy it demonstrates how easily things change in our momentary lives. We never really know.
All we can do is continually train ourselves to more and more embrace the delicious ambiguities that arrive on our doorsteps, smile and get on with it.
Life’s like that. And it will never, ever change. Change is inevitable. The unknown stands before us right now. Looks tasty!
